Track your water tanker online

Now people can monitor the position of water tankers with Delhi Jal Board online. Deputy Chief Minister and Chairperson of Delhi Jal Board Manish Sisodia inaugurated a new portal for public tracking of drinking water tankers.

With an aim to improve transparency and curb the tanker mafia, the DJB’s website has a new feature where the user can enter their local tanker point’s address and find out the whereabouts of their tanker. One can check where the tanker is, how long it will take to reach and how much water it is carrying.

“This will go a long way in bringing about transparency in government functioning and in turn, help in the empowerment of the common people,” said Sisodia.
The portal can be accessed on mobile phones, apart from computers, making it easier for people to track the tankers from anywhere.

About 450 of the total 800 tankers have been fitted with GPS devices; work on the remaining is on.

“This new step of public monitoring of water tankers will prove to be a major deterrent against the tanker mafias operating in Delhi,” said DJB vice-chairperson Kapil Mishra.
‘Mobile app coming’

Mishra said the DJB will be soon launching a dedicated mobile app for tracking tankers.  About 18 per cent of Delhi lacks piped water supply, and depends on the DJB’s tanker service for clean drinking water.

Apart from information on tankers and their schedules, the portal also has details of the filling points, officials responsible for them and senior officers of the DJB. It also has a section where users can file their complaints and check the status.

According to DJB, contact details of the officers has also been provided on the portal so that the consumers can get in touch with them in case of non-arrival of tanker. “The DJB has also provided a window to the consumers to lodge their complaints through this portal,” it added.
